We describe a portable diode-laser-based sensor for NH(3) detection using vibrational overtone absorption spectroscopy at 1.53 mum. Use of fiber-coupled optical elements makes such a trace gas sensor rugged and easy to align. On-line data acquisition and processing requiring <30 s can be performed with a laptop PC running LabVIEW software. The gas sensor(More)
Measurements of NH(3) and CO(2) were made in bioreactor vent gases with distributed-feedback diode-laser sensors operating near 2 mum. Calculated spectra of NH(3) and CO(2) were used to determine the optimum transitions for interrogating with an absorption sensor. For ammonia, a strong and isolated absorption transition at 5016.977 cm(-1) was selected for(More)
We combine suspended-core microstructured optical fibers with the photoinduced electron transfer (PET) effect to demonstrate a new type of fluorescent optical fiber-dip sensing platform for small volume ion detection. A sensor design based on a simple model PET-fluoroionophore system and small core microstructured optical fiber capable of detecting sodium(More)
The greenhouse-gas molecules CO(2), CH(4), and H(2)O are detected in air within a few ms by a novel cavity-ringdown laser-absorption spectroscopy technique using a rapidly swept optical cavity and multi-wavelength coherent radiation from a set of pre-tuned near-infrared diode lasers. The performance of various types of tunable diode laser, on which this(More)
We report a novel fiber-optic sensing architecture for the detection of paramagnetic gases. By interacting a modulated magnetic field with guided light within a microstructured optical fiber, it is possible to exploit Faraday Rotation Spectroscopy (FRS) within unprecedentedly small sample volumes. This approach, which utilizes magnetic circular(More)
All commercially available reagents were used without further purification. Thin layer chromatograms were run on MERCK aluminum-backed silica gel 60 F 254 plates (20 × 20 cm, 0.25 mm thickness) and viewed under 254 nm UV light. Flash column chromatography was performed using Davisil silica gel 60 (particle size 0.040–0.063 mm) from Grace Gmbh and Co. KG(More)
